  4. 4. Does socially engaged art imply partnership? Question 01
  5. 5. NOT NECESSARILY… BUT IT’S BETTER WHEN IT DOES My short answer:
  6. 6. When thinking about socially engaged art, I don’t think the production of the art or even the process and implementation of it must entail partnership. Because art can be a reflective process and a response to social topics, I think it can engage people, viewers, and participants without necessarily steering out of partnership.
  7. 7. Example: Guerrilla art It doesn’t require partnership to evoke participation or engagement.
  8. 8. Bansky. His original works were largely produced in anonymity and guerrilla style without public notification, yet still remained visually and socially potent.
  9. 9. Shepard Fairey. Fairey produced the infamous “Hope” poster as a student and individual art project in 2008 with the onset of Barack Obama’s Presidential campaign.
  10. 10. These were socially engaging and relevant with audiences, but they originally initiated as individual works.
  11. 11. Here’s the “...but”
  12. 12. 1. I think that community art definitely implies partnership. 2. Both community art and socially engaged art can be more effective, potent, and even long-standing when partnerships are formed and capacity is built.

  14. 14. Bansky. Because of the popularity of his works and style, publics began to seek Banksy to produce works in their communities. Sponsorships, partnerships, and commissions from organizations, corporations, and publishers also followed.
  15. 15. Shepard Fairey. As “Hope” became viral, partnerships led the artwork to become the most iconic and widely distributed image and symbol of the political scene of 2008 and beyond. Such support systems also helped Fairey avoid being sued for the usage of Obama’s image.
